    Golem Gear Bov

    I have the large older Golem Gear BOV (not the shrimp) and I would like to replace the one way valves. What I thought would be a 2 minute job is taking much longer. I purchased the same size valves from Apeks and I can not get the stem to go through the hole and lock. Does anyone know what company sells the one way valves for the Golem Gear Bov? Thank you or any assistance you can provide.

    Yes, they were. The original ( I believe Apeks) grey flappers had a very high WOB. I would definitely change for the newer (I believe Draeger) flappers - noting they used different holders.

    The upgraded valves use Dräger mushroom valves in the new holders.
    the centre hole in the new holder is smaller than the one that held the
    old grey mushroom valves, what colour are your new and old mushroom
    valves?

    The ones that are in it that I want to replace are a Grayish color, The Apeks ones that I tried to put in that did not fit are black.

    Gray ones are the Apex originals.
    the upgrade are the draegers with different holders

    What Gabe said but in my experience the Dreager replacements
    have a thinner stub than the grey original ones so would actually
    fall out of the original holders, seems strange!
